    First attempt at painting ROTJ armor (pic intensive)

    So thanks to Darth Miller for helping me get the base colors on I added the topical damage. What do you guys think. I am a little dissapointed with the left knee. I might retry that one.

    I was schooled by Darth Miller who said When displaying the costume the Pre-Pro left knee got mixed up with the other costume and so that was how it was displayed. DM chime in if I am wrong, please.

    Yeah I'll have to have DM look at it and give me some pointers. That knee is a bugger!

    So I updated my other thread but I wanted to show you the fixed Left Knee paint job. If you are doing the SE ROTJ Fett I suggest using the layered method for the Left knee because the topical is really hard to achieve that natural scratch look.

    Here is the before:


    And After:


    Tell me what ya think!
